New Family Support Group for South Down Heart Families

25th September 2017

Children’s Heartbeat Trust launches new local family group for families of children with heart disease.

Leading children’s charity, the Children’s Heartbeat Trust will launch a new family support group for families of children with congenital heart disease in the South Down area. Local families welcomed this news at the annual Grace’s Coffee Morning fundraising event in Banbridge on Saturday. The group will have their first meeting on Saturday 28thOctober from 2-4pm for a Crazy Clay workshop at the Community Room, Tesco, Bridgewater Park, Banbridge.

The Children’s Heartbeat Trust delivers emotional and practical support to children and young people with heart disease in Northern Ireland, and their families. The new South Down family support group, which will be co-ordinated by local parents Judith McKee and Sinead Campbell, will join the 11 other family support groups across Northern Ireland. This group is open to all families effected by congenital or inherited heart disease living in Northern Ireland and will involve lots of family friendly activities and events.

Speaking at Grace’s Coffee Morning, Deboragh Webb, Youth and Family Support Worker, Children’s Heartbeat Trust, said: "We are looking forward to launching the new South Down Family group next month. The group will be a great way to bring local heart families from right across the area together.”

"Sharing the news of our new family support group at Grace’s Coffee Morning is particularly special, as Grace’s mum, Judith, has done so much to help raise funds for the Children’s Heartbeat Trust. Grace’s Coffee Morning, which this year raised over £2,700 for Children’s Heartbeat Trust and Donard School, where Grace is a pupil, is always a very popular event and Judith’s drive and commitment are an inspiration to us all.”
